FelipeR.Jun 28, 2009Awesome album!
KoryM.Jun 30, 2009Simply, one of the greatest albums I have ever heard. It will be a d@mn shame if this piece of art never sees the light of day. NPR has had a stream up for at least a month...listen while you can.… Expand
SjoerdJun 27, 2009It's dark and brooding. I love the atmosphere of the album, and apart from that, the music is just great.

Jan 3, 2014Dark Night of the Soul is a collection of great songs with an all star cast of collaborators but in the end the result is less than the sum of the parts. I say this as I was expecting a total beast of a record but instead just found a really good one. The who's who of indie is present on a record that mixes excellent songwriting with sharp production and is well worth getting hold of. What goes against the record slightly is the number of different collaborations. This tends to take away for the continuity of the album. For example we get a trio of rock numbers in Little Girl, Angel's Harp and Pain in the middle of an otherwise very laid back and chilled out record. These songs kind of come out of nowhere and disappear again. I will say that I did come to the record expecting a little bit more but the record is nothing if not interesting and I'd recommend it to anyone into either Dangermouse or Sparklehorse.… Expand
